Hey guys, I’ve started work on a possible William and Sly 3. Follow me on facebook for updates!


It feels good to be finally submitting this. I hope you all have fun! Merry Xmas. :3


The game should save automatically, but opening the map will do a manual write to the HD. This might cause a moment of lag on some computers. So, DON'T PANIC! lol

If you want to make sure your game saves, open the map before you quit. It should be fine even if you don't, but a tester had an issue so I threw a flush statement in as a failsafe. :3

Very enjoyable, beautiful game

I liked the unfolding back-story, and the ohmen powers really added to the gameplay. Also the game gets a 10/10 for looks - really improved these from the last game. I do think a little something was missing. Maybe some challenge from having enemies, maybe upgrades, maybe some more story to fill in the cracks. My overall point is that I thoroughly enjoyed the gameplay, but at the end I felt sort of let down.
Perhaps the easiest and most helpful thing to add would be some more explanation/finality to the ending screen.
Still excellent piece of work.

2 years and 6 months

i must confess after a long time i didn't expect to see William and Sly again.

of all the improvements made to a wonderful game, i would like to highlight one in particular the flying, instead of just gliding once in the air in one direction now Sly can stay in air as long as i want go high up and in any direction.

that kind of freedom for me is priceless, i really loved that

Beautiful, but slightly lacking in gameplay

When I saw this on the front page, I immediately remembered the first William and Sly which was clearly good enough to stick firmly in my memory. Went back to that one then remembered replaying the whole game to find that only 2 medals actually worked even though I'd done everything -_- Nice that this time they all worked lol
This game is a vast improvement on the last in terms of graphics. The gameplay is stunningly smooth, the animations are great and the artwork is beautiful. Might have been nice to have some 3D movement of the background though, especially while jumping through the air. I quite liked the black tunnels in the last game, but there weren't any in this one, only a few pockets. However, the hidden caves revealing themselves was great, and the animations and sounds were perfect.
Since there are no enemies in this game it feels like it's lacking something and it's a little too easy... Could've had some gnomes moving things about, but I'm guessing you've got something planned for the third game :P Also the flying ability rather than gliding makes searching very easy.
The map including locations of chests and other landmarks, although making it easier, is a great addition since it can be a pain having to remember where things were that you've already passed.
The music is fantastic, and I liked the sound effects at shrines, but I feel like more sound effects could have been used, like on landing after a jump, wind effects at high altitudes, or even footsteps while running (although Sly's a fox, so should be quiet anyway...)
I thought the controls were mostly very ergonomic, since it's sometimes helpful to move around while looking at the map.
Also loved the inclusion of background story line in the journal pages.
Biggest problem is lack of enemies or something to give the game some challenging aspect other than collecting stuff... for instance upgrades always get me hooked XD Maybe you could cash in mushrooms for improvements on abilities like jump height and speed... Other than that, fantastic game.

the old, the new, and the hidden bs

i like the idea of the game being 3D but the 2D had a hint of simplicicty which alot of people liked and about 75% of the peole that play this went wtf about the 3D. wish there was a 2D option o_o. any way the item searching is really annoying since i literally went everywhere to find just one thing that everyone missed.

Kajenx responds:

The problem with 2D is that I really hate making it, lol. As long as the 3D characters don't grate on your eyes it's a success in my book. :P
